Posted on 03/22/2010 3:35:51 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA
WASHINGTON A suspected Al Qaeda organizer once called "the highest value detainee" at Guantanamo Bay was ordered released by a federal judge in an order issued Monday.
Mohamedou Ould Slahi was accused in the 9/11 Commission report of helping recruit Mohammed Atta and other members of the Al Qaeda cell in Hamburg, Germany, that took part in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Military prosecutors suspected Slahi of links to other Al Qaeda operations, and considered seeking the death penalty against him while preparing possible charges in 2003 and 2004.

One nightmare after another.
And you all are banking on our court system to repeal the health bill ??? LOL
Everyone at Gitmo should of been shot by firing squad before Bush left office, eventually they will all walk free because of liberals.
Did this “judge” release them to his or her neighborhood? Will the miscreant be ticketed on the next flight the judge’s family takes? What a total loser.
This was a lower court decision.
tag before release, we hope
hopefully there’s a predator in his future
judge was appointed by Clinton
U.S. District Judge James Robertson was appointed by Bill Clinton.
Thank obamer and holder for their acts of wisdom in protecting the American people.
New York must have sighed with relief....
how hard do you suppose holder’s justice department fought to prevent the release of the president’s muslim brother?
Per Foxnews, all info gained from him is inadmissible because they didn’t issue him pillows while getting it (my paraphrasing of course).
But that is the gist of it.
Clinton appointment..is anyone surprised?
He has done this before and is well known for his leftist leanings and tireless work for terrorists. My guess is that Obama’s justice department will not fight this or if they do for political reasons...they will not fight to win.
Anyone out there trust your government?
>>Everyone at Gitmo should of been shot by firing squad before Bush left office, eventually they will all walk free because of liberals.
Another aspect of Bush’s “legacy”. There should have been immediate military tribunals followed by the hanging of illegal combatants. Instead, we get this.
We had the guts to do it in WWII, so the precedent was there.

New Mexico connection. This lady was no doubt a former political appointee of the Richardson administration.
That would be Obummer and Folder...
The Lefties either don't understand that, or they want him back on the battlefield.
So this is what happens when a terrorist is instead tried in the normal court system?
Screw you, 0bama!
The terrorist’s ‘lawyer’:” Ms. Hollander was one of the lawyers representing Wen Ho Lee, a scientist accused of stealing secrets about the United States nuclear arsenal for China. She handled many of the issues relating to the suppression of evidence against him and issues relating to the Special Administrative Measures to which he was subjected. She is currently lead defense counsel in United States v. Holy Land Foundation, a multi-defendant case involving allegations of material support to the Specially Designated Terrorist Organization, Hamas.’
A personal friend of Eric Holder no doubt. She is an ACLU traitor to this country....just like Holder.
This is a war criminal. He should not still be drawing breath.
And those who subscribe to Obama’s “soft power” philosophy are criminals as well in my book. Millions are likely to die because of them.
I think the dems will do all they can to destroy America between now and November.
It wasn’t President Bush holding up the prosecutions of these terrorists in a military tribunal...it was the ACLU and other’s.... like Eric Holder’s old law firm.
President Bush was required by law to respond to their lawsuits and then they just kept filing one after another. Can we get off the Bush bashing please and focus on the damn communists that are taking over our country?
There are about 9 people working for Holder who defended terrorists.
Obama is closing Gitmo.
People in the field must now give Miranda rights to terrorists.
Holder is attempting to try the 9/11 terrorists in civilian court.
3 Navy SEAL’s are on trial for punching a terrorist in the nose.
And now this.
How can ANYONE believe dems are Pro-America?
Clinton appointed this judge? But how can that be. We had peace and prosperity when Clinton was president and everything was fine.
So many people actually believe that, so they thought it was OK to trust the presidency to a Dem again. Heaven help us all.
Does this judge realize that Guantanamo Bay is a unique entity as it is not a US territory or state and he has no authority there?
When the first city goes up in a white flash, at least we can rest easy knowing we did the right thing /s
Seriously. At some point, the grown ups may have to take the steering wheel away from the kids (and it may not be peaceful).
This terrorist should get one thing on his release from prison: 230 grains.
I think we are going to be there much sooner than most people are expecting.
Apparently, they threatened his mother per Foxnews!
Geez, no threats against mommy! Poop, poor terrorist.
I am hoping that’s the case.
It has to. The current system is unsustainable and has to crash before it can be restored. It’s all a matter of who is going to be there to do the rebuilding. I’m hoping its the good guys (meaning us)
They over played their hand...we still have a volunteer military and an armed citizenry...
They will seek to counter with amnesty and a draft......
Fruit of a tainted vine or some such. How is this any different
from KSM? They will all walk and resume killing us.
When God is forced out of our courts and governments, as He has been, our laws become powerless to enforce the protections over us He intended....rather they become an instrument in the power of another who protects the guilty...just as we see more and more of...and they will continue to strut their evil before us. (Pelosi's photo on Drudge shows this well)
God will not acknowledge lip service....especially when He is defied by our leadership...blatantly and unashamedly, as is now done in our courts and governance. And we will and do pay a price for supporting them.
It doesn't matter if one believes this or not...He doesn't need our approval to act or refrain from acting...But if you look at what's happening throughout our country...thru the eyes of understanding there is no way our laws can do what they are intended to do without the one who Empowers them to work...then we'll never understand the madness we are seeing playing out.
I’m convinced that we’re not going to make it to November, especially if Amnesty is passed. That’s the whole plan. They don’t care about healthcare or amnesty in the long run. They are trying to crash the system. They are trying to incite open rebellion.
Just so you know...
Once the Gitmo detainees are moved to the US, a federal judge will ORDER them to stand in civilian trials and will rule the military tribunals unconstitutional because the detainees are on US soil.
Holder will know what judge to send the case to so he can get this ruling, and Obama approves. In this way, 0 can have the best of both worlds.
Exactly. This is intentional incompetence by the Obama Justice Department. Before the end of 2012, KSM will be released as well.
New Mexico list PING!
Sure they are....But the model they are using is europe...not america...
I would sooner burn my own house down and rebuild it from the ground rather than see it painted red...
There are levels of survival I’m willing to endure for liberty...

“Judge Orders Release of Gitmo Detainee With Ties to 9/11 Attacks”
Monday, March 22, 2010
SNIPPET: “Mohamedou Ould Slahi was accused in the 9/11 Commission report of helping recruit Mohammed Atta and other members of the Al Qaeda cell in Hamburg, Germany, that took part in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Military prosecutors suspected Slahi of links to other Al Qaeda operations, and considered seeking the death penalty against him while preparing possible charges in 2003 and 2004.”
SNIPPET: “Brig. Gen. John Furlow, who helped lead a Pentagon-ordered investigation into detainee abuse at Guantanamo Bay, has testified that Slahi was “the highest value detainee” at the offshore prison and “the key orchestrator of the Al Qaeda cell in Europe.””
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I hope there are a lot more out there like you, friend. We’re about to come to a time where people won’t be able to sit on the fence.
We’re there now.
Frustrating, isn't it? Damned if you do; damned if you don't.
There's something they're overlooking, though; I'm sure of it. It may be the patience and endurance and determination of the American people, as we repent and kneel in praise and prayer to our God, the One they blaspheme. He is truly Omniscient and Omnipotent; more than capable of delivering us from this encroaching evil, and obliterating them with one breath.
We must continue to resist and challenge this diligently, but above all else, more and more Americans must repent and seek God's blessing upon our nation and His vengeance upon our enemy.
